Smart Home Devices


Has anyone installed any smart home devices in their RV?  Lights, plugs, Amazon Echo or Google Home?

I don't use anything but my Win/10 computer and my Smartphone! Technology has to let me have some control of my own living, LOL!
Really it makes me wonder when I ask the newer generation a geography question and they have to get on the Wilkipedia application to get the answer!

we have not, but know many who do. It really depends on how large an internet bill you are willing to have. Most RV lights are 12 volt DC and the modules for smart homes are 120 volt AC, so do not expect to control your lights with it. (We do not have any 120 volt lights).

 Sounds like an addressable market segment.  Similar low voltage applications already exist. They could be adapted to RVs IMHO.

In reference to 120 volt lights, we have only one.  We replaced our original equipment ceiling fan with a Hunter fan several years ago.  That fan came with a light kit but without a cap should I wanted to leave off the lights.  Thus, we have a light kit on our fan, and on occasion, it does come in handy.
